Hear Mree interviewed on Echoes tonight.
Technically, Mree isn’t a new artist. She released her debut album, Glow, in 2011 when she was all of 17 years old. But it’s her sophomore release, Winterwell, that revealed an artist of intoxicating depth and studio virtuosity. Mree is not your typical singer song-writer. Even though she started out playing acoustic guitar in her bedroom and recording alt-rock songs in her bathroom on YouTube, she’s evolved her sound into something closer to dream pop than folk, embracing influences from the New Age, Alt-Rock and ambient into a music that is both intimate and atmospheric. As a child Mree listened to Mariah Carey, but now the 20 year old musician is more likely to cite, Sigur Ros, Hammock and Bon Iver as influences. She talks about Winterwell, listening to Enya and looping her voice tonight on Echoes.
